Críticas:

"The most powerful and profound novel about women written by a man in our generation . . . Like all extraordinary books, Garp defies synopsis. . . . A marvelous, important, permanent novel by a serious artist of remarkable powers."--Chicago Sun-Times

"Nothing in contemporary fiction matches it. . . . Irving's blend of gravity and play is unique, audacious, almost blasphemous. . . . Brilliant, funny, and consistently wise; a work of vast talent."--The New Republic

"A wonderful novel, full of energy and art, at once funny and horrifying and heartbreaking."--Washington Post

Reseña del editor:

20th ANNIVERSARY EDITION
with a new Afterword from the author
The New York Times bestseller
This is the life and times of T. S. Garp, the bastard son of Jenny
Fields--a feminist leader ahead of her times. This is the life and death
of a famous mother and her almost-famous son; theirs is a world of sexual
extremes--even of sexual assassinations. It is a novel rich with "lunacy
and sorrow"; yet the dark, violent events of the story do not undermine a
comedy both ribald and robust. In more than thirty languages, in more than
forty countries--with more than ten million copies in print--this novel
provides almost cheerful, even hilarious evidence of its famous last line:
"In the world according to Garp, we are all terminal cases."

Praise for The World According to Garp 'John Irving, it is abundantly clear, is a true artist.' - Los Angeles Times 'A brilliant panoply of current attitudes toward sex, marriage and parenthood, the feminist movement and - above all - the concept of delineated sexual roles. Irving's characters will stay alive for years to come.' - Chicago Tribune 'A social tragi-comedy of such velocity that it reads rather like a domestic sequel to Catch-22.' - The Observer (London) 'A large talent announces itself on practically every page.' - The Book-of-the-Month Club News 624 pp. Englisch.
